Communications link failure MySQL JDBC with TLS

Ran into an interesting situation trying to configure a MySQL JDBC driver to connect over TLS (though the driver may call it SSL, TLS is the name for more recent versions of the protocol).

The error I was getting was pretty generic:

Communications link failure The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The driver has not received any packets from the server.

With the relevant parts of the stacktrace, also being non helpful:
